More new Moths for the Garden

My first full year moth-trapping is going to be an exciting one. Not only does it coincide with the formation of the new Ceredigion Moth Group which should keep me busy, but there is the chance of seeing new species almost every time I put the trap out.

I starting writing this post about a week or so ago after a fairly successful nights catch but forgot to publish it. Seeing as it had a photo of a new moth for me I thought I’d add it now.

The Double-striped Pug may only be small, but looks lovely up close and was a new garden record for me.

Double-striped Pug

There were 13 moths in total that night:

  • Shoulder Stripe x8
  • Early Grey x1
  • Mottled Grey x1
  • Double-striped Pug x1
  • Red Chestnut x1
  • A micr0 – A yet unidentified.
